A new opportunity has become available as a Solution Architect, as part of the First Minister’s Digital Fellowship Programme.
In 2018, the Deputy First Minister announced plans for a new national scheme to make financial payments (as part of redress) to survivors of historical child abuse in care in Scotland.
To deliver this high-profile commitment, a new Scottish Government Division has been established within the Children and Families Directorate. The enabling legislation for the redress scheme has been drafted and, subject to parliamentary approval, it will become law in Spring 2021. The Service Design and Delivery Unit is now working to progress the work needed to translate policy into practice, with the intention of opening the new scheme for applications at the earliest opportunity. This post will offer candidates the opportunity to be involved in a key Scottish Government commitment and to assist in designing a service with the voices of survivors at its heart.
The Solution Architect will be responsible for scoping, defining, and assisting in the implementation of technical architecture to support the operational delivery of the redress scheme. This role will involve building on technical requirements and recommendations devised during Discovery.
This position is a 12-month secondment with the potential to extend, and closing date for applications is 9th March.
